Welcome to Doylestown Advanced Competitive Pickleball site. There is a tryout/evaluation to join this group. Recommendation by an existing group member and an evaluation/tryout is required to be considered for admittance. Membership is $50/yr, plus sessions fees for indoor play and special events. We will play on the outside and inside courts on alternating weekly scheduling, conditions permitting.
This group is designed for advancing players who are competitive at the 3.5 (USAPA) and higher level with a diverse demonstrated skill set of soft and hard game, partner strategy and rally patience. Unforced errors and out balls will be the exception, not the rule.
Understanding this group will have a wide range of 3.5 and higher advanced players, most sessions will utilize at least one court assigned for the FIRST HOUR as an advanced player challenge court and the rest of the courts for the usual paddle drop play. In this first hour, only designated, seasoned tournament level and ranked 4.0, 4.5 and above members will be permitted on the challenge court(s).
After the 1st hour, the general meetup participants may challenge winners on this/these courts. Challenge court winners remain and DO NOT split. Challenging team does not come from the paddle drop pile. Challengers need to have paired up and be waiting for the challenge match to finish, then go for it.
